WASHINGTON, D.C. -(Ammoland.com)- On Friday, a group of Gun Owners of America (GOA) industry partners known as the No Compromise Alliance sent a letter to Congress opposing the proposed so-called “assault weapons” ban (H.R. 1808) and the repeal of Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (H.R. 2814).

The coalition consists of Fort Scott Munitions, Classic Firearms, Rifle Dynamics, Alpha Omega Kydex Holster, T.Rex Arms, Kahr Firearms Group, Wolfpack Armory, Freedom Ordnance MFG, and Foxtrot Mike Products. The letter was sent to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and Minority Whip John Thun (R-SD).

The letter urges the Senate to oppose two bills currently expected to pass the U.S. House of Representatives and head to the Senate. The first bill is the Assault Weapons Ban of 2022 (H.R. 1808). The proposed law will ban commonly owned semi-automatic firearms for mostly cosmetic features. The ban targets the popular AR-15, known as the modern American musket, and AK pattern guns that Rifle Dynamics produces. It would also limit magazine size to ten rounds. The bill refers to any magazine that can hold more than ten rounds as “high compacity.” One of the most concerning parts of the anti-gun House bill would ban guns that have a fully automatic version. Since Glock makes the automatic Glock 18, the Glock 17, the most popular handgun in the world, could be banned by the new proposed “assault weapons” ban.

The second bill is the Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act of 2022 (H.R. 2814). That bill would repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA). This proposed law would allow anyone to sue firearms manufacturers for any reason. Congress passed the PLCAA to protect the firearms industry from litigation from anti-gun groups trying to bankrupt the gun industry.

Using lawsuits are already being used by anti-gun groups and anti-guns states to sue gun companies. Brady has launched several lawsuits against companies such as Polymer 80. States like New York and cities like Baltimore have also sued gun companies.

The letter claims that the laws will do irreparable damage to the firearms industry. Rifle Dynamics entire catalog would be illegal under the proposed law costing Las Vegas well-paying jobs. The gun companies say it would put many gun companies out of business.

The group highlights that these laws will cost lives by denying lifesaving tools to the public. It highlights that 14 million new gun owners sought firearms to protect themselves and their families during the unrest of last summer, where cities burned during the riots and lives were lost. These gun owners have used their firearms in self-defense a staggering 1.67 million times yearly.

The law also highlights the government’s own studies that showed that the 1994 Assault Weapons ban did not lower crime. The new bill is more extreme than the Clinton-era bill that sunset in 2004.

The group wants the Senators to honor their oath to the Constitution and want Congress to focus on real solutions to the problems plaguing society.

The bill to ban weapons covers many firearms by design it fulfills the global elites plan to disarm the American people.

These are not honorable men and should not be addressed so.

Russn8r

I agree.

Even GOA insists on pretending it’s not a waste time to address them at all. No experienced activist with IQ>90 thinks they give a F about this letter.

GOA lobbies pols in every district, yet tells members only to lobby their own, even if they’re “represented” by committed grabbers in fully secure districts like Schumer or Pelosi, rather than focus on potentially vulnerable & therefore potentially receptive pols in other districts. Our enemies are comforted by that stupidity.

But is it really stupidity? Maybe professional “access” lobbyists just don’t want competition.

I agree and mr or ms should be left out too this is the pick your pronoun bunch

Chuck

What did we learn this week? First, That the majority of Democrats are all in with Tyranny as long as they are the ones doing the Tyrannizing. Second, we learned that Ruger is very Pro-ATF, and don’t believe the NFA and all subsequent Anti 2A legislation should be repealed. Third, we learned that Daniel Defense came very close to siding with Ruger. Fourth, that Smith & Wesson refused to incriminate themselves one way or the other. No Rep Maloney wants to subpoena S&W to make them answer the question. So we know Democrats are a threat to our Republic. Ruger… Read more »

1) Ruger’s always been treacherous, like NSSF & NRA, with which it’s embedded.

2) ALL Dems are ok with Tyranny despite comments or votes seemingly to the contrary. All belong to a party with a tyrannical platform, all vote for gun grabber leadership (Pelosi, Schumer), all confirm gun grabbers to key positions (Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Chimpanzee Brown Jackson, Eric Holder, Merrick Garland, Steve Dettelbach), all endorse gun grabbers for key offices (Obama, Clinton, Biden).

OpeTEX sock posse loves traitors.

Chuck

“Compacity” hasn’t a damn thing to do with “capacity.” Two completely unrelated terms. Which Morons thought that display of Vocabulary Ignorance up?

hippybiker

Calling Chuckie “The Possum” Schumer and “Douchebag Dick” Durbin honorable is really stretching reality! Just saying.

incorrigible

“We The People” must be disarmed (for our own good) so that we can be controlled!

Wild Bill

Yes, there is no profit in letting people be free. If people are dependent and kept a little hungry, then they will do disagreeable work that profits their overlords.

The way it’s going now there won’t be any profit anywhere, except to the gummit, who will then send it to our worst enemies. Congress should pass a law making it illegal to sell agricultural land, and ‘sensitive’ land, to any foreign entity for any reason. And while I’m at it, if Trump were still Potus, Mexico would be shaking in their boots over this China Fentanyl issue. If they vote along party lines, we will have the assault weapons ban in place by the first of the year, because we know what the Rinos will do. Our tree of… Read more »

Oldman,things will really turn around after the upcoming mid-terms. Then of course after President Trump wins for the third time ‘in 24 and is back in office these dark days will be a distant memory.

Oldman

I hope you are right, but however it goes I won’t let the memory become too distant…..

Ope

Oldman,I sure hope I’m right too. I guess I’m just trying to stay as optimistic as possible. Have a great weekend.

Chuck

Trump will run a third time for office, but he’s only running for a “second term.” He’ll be running twice to complete a second term if he chooses to run in 2024. No President may now run a Third Term per the 22nd Amendment of the US Constitution.

Ope

Chuck,I said President Trump will run and win for the third time,not term in ‘24. I’ve understood about presidential term limits for decades.

Wild Bill

“No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, …” Please see AmendmentXXII, section 1, US Constitution.

Russn8r

He knows. There’s no amendment against winning 3x, 1 win stolen/not counted, 3rd win counted, serve 2x.

Yes, if only we had a real president.

Bill,the ridiculous moron illegally in the WH has got COVID again. At least that’s what various news outlets are saying.

new tax proposal, double size of irs sounds like we are getting closer to dissolving country ,remove guns this is a recipe for civil war government against people

Didn’t log in until I saw your response. 10 thumbs up. If WE the PEOPLE stay strong the NWO will not happen here regardless of what the Fing idiot that stole the election says. FJB

“Ordinary citizens don’t need guns, as their having guns doesn’t serve the State.” – Joey Biden….aka “You don’t need an AR-14 or 30 round “clips” (sic) to hunt deer.”   Aw…..I apologize, got names confused…it was Heinrich Himmler. Our Founding Fathers weren’t thinking the “deer are coming” when they penned the Second Amendment. They had recently deposed a tyrant. The new agenda for humanity requires that no one will have the capacity to fight back. It has been said: “Our Task of creating a Socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist us have been totally disarmed.” No other explanation… Read more »

Amazing they don’t consider what the firearms industry provides, aside from of course the obvious.
Over 370K jobs in the industry, some towns its one of their major employers. The money provided to these families in way of pay to go back into the community and the money donated by firearms industries to places like the VFW, Shriners, and much more. Not to mention the over $1 billion from excise taxes to help wildlife conservation. And the money flows into non firearms related industries that again provide jobs.

Wild Bill

All true, but dependent people are an asset.

Watch um

You have it right. Webster got it right when the definition of a group of Baboons as a congress

MP71

A good number of jobs in the gun industry are high paying highly skilled labor such as machinists and engineers. The ripples of this go fad beyond gun and gun accessory manufacturers. Companies that supply the gun industry with raw materials are going to take a big hit. Not to mention all the small businesses that are associated with firearms. I’m sure those families will get by just fine on their Universal Basic Income stipends.

StLPro2A

Irrelevant to these tyrants’ big picture goals.

RB

For sure it extends to beyond just the firearms industry. I don’t understand why we don’t hear more from many of these gun manufactures, gun accessory makers, mom and pop stores and so on. If I was a business with employees I’d be doing whatever I can against someone trying to put me out of business. Where are their voices?? There should be 100 more letters like this one in the article to them from gun shops, manufacturers, the families that are provided a life by this industry, etc.

To a President that wiped out 11,000 jobs with the stroke of his pen on Day One, what’s another 370K+ Jobs. They can always build Solar Panels that only work when Democrats shine their light on them and Wind Towers powered only by Unicorn Farts.

Why is it that nobody remembers OBAMA’S SOLAR PANEL FIASCO, Bought into a company when he was first elected and by the time he left office it had gone BELLY UP, just a reminder!!!!!!!!!

Let’s Go Brandon!! and all the Congress scum he rode in with.

Wild Bill

I have been meaning to ask, isn’t the Roland weapons system that mid range anti-aircraft gun?

RAS

Too bad these preditory politicians don’t care about anyone but themselves. Once elected, they view themselves as royalty and us citizens as their serfs. Sadly, I never would have thought that the people of this nation would be so willing and actually cheer on their governments taking away of their fundamental rights. Our government has failed us. This country and the world is now a most dangerous place because of them, and now they woould take away our tools to defend ourselves. That should scare the heck out of people of all Parties! We were warned!

Wild Bill

Yes, “MEism”

nrringlee

Our political castes at the federal level are doing everything they can to instigate a civil war.

DDS

I don’t believe they think one is possible. No more than they believe we’re now in the second quarter of a recession. Or that excessive government spending causes inflation. Or that the steps they’ve taken to “transition” us to an economy based on renewable energy has anything to do with the situation in the fossil fuel markets. Just another example of them being wildly out of touch with the American people. https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/3569350-half-of-americans-expect-a-civil-war-in-the-next-few-years/ Note that the poll was conducted by UC Davis. Not exactly a bastion of right wing extremism. As a result, we can consider that the number of Americans… Read more »

THEY are not out of touch. what we see happening is all part of the Leftist plan. THEY, the NWO and our own politico sellouts think that THEY are going run things there way, but it is beginning to look like some people are getting really fed up.

We are already in a “Civil War” thankfully the shooting hasn’t started yet, as I have my doubts about saving our Constitutional Republic.

Wild Bill

I’m thinking that the Liberal World Order as Biden’s economic advisor termed it, wants to provoke a civil war, now, because they control our armed forces, now. The timing is right … for them.

musicman44mag

I agree and I think the proof is that they are making sure to get rid of everyone who will not comply to the governments will and looking for no brainer yes master I will obey for my paycheck people only.

Laddyboy

I have to agree that the IDOTE nwo sycophants have been removing Patriots from the government military. HOWEVER, there ARE MANY PATRIOTS STILL THERE BIDING THEIR TIME!!!

Laddyboy

I disagree!

Wild Bill

I’m good with that. I respect your right to have and express your opinion.

Wild Bill

And also wildly out of touch with Economics 101.

War has been coming for a long time. Problem is that the powers that be want it ASAP since Trump was elected.

In Thomas Jefferson’s letter of 1787 to William Stephens Smith, the son-in-law of John Adams, postulates on the newly drafted Constitution and what it will mean. One of his statements succinctly deals with our situation today, and I quote: “What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost… Read more »

That is because he scares the you know what out of them because he wants to destroy the swamp which is what the left and some right thinking RINOs are. They know if he is re-elected that his actions will set them so far back on their implementation of the NWO that it will not come to pass here in the USA. That is one of the reasons besides increasing wealth that the left wants to take away our guns so they have complete power and control and nothing to stop them.

REMEMBER — 0b0z0 called for a “civilian army”! America already has a Militia Army behind every blade of grass —- biding our time!

And they are dying for the republicans to take the first shot. That’s why they proclaimed the peaceful protest on Jan 6 an insurrection while nancy promotes the real insurrection that took place in Wisconsin “what real political activism is and should look like”..

Arny

It highlights that 14 million new gun owners sought firearms to protect themselves and their families during the unrest of last summer, where cities burned during the riots and lives were lost. Due to Democrat politicians creating & fueling these protest. Fixed it for them. When are the hearings ? lol

musicman44mag

And is scares the hell out of the racist left when more black people are arming themselves. I laugh when I think that they are afraid of little old black ladies that have guns. What wimps. I know a major percentage of those little old black ladies are Christians and don’t have the gang mentality that runs in the younger generations today and think that what they are doing is wrong. So glad they are some of the newcomers to gun ownership. I hope they will be the newcomers to the republican party too. If it pisses off the left,… Read more »
